Here's a video recap of the 10th annual U.S. Ski Mountaineering National Championships. The event featured 7,850 feet of ascending and descending in Jackson Hole and took on place March 21st. Contestants skinned up the mountain, traversed on skis, boot-packed up the infamously steep Corbet's Couloir, and then skied to the finish. Pete Swenson won with a time of 2:26:26, with Monique Merrill leading the women with a time of 3:12:32.
